Just want to add my appreciation for giving kudos to one of the finest "concept albums" of all time in LAMB LIES DOWN. It's pretty brilliant, and Gabriel certainly left the band on a high note.

It should be said also that, believe it or not, Genesis AFTER Gabriel actually did produce two excellent, and one pretty good, album before Phil Collins led the rest of the band into the nether regions of pop horribleness and quick-buck junk music for which they would forever after be known.

TRICK OF THE TAIL and WIND AND WUTHERING show what the band could have been had they chosen to stick to inventive musicianship, and even though AND THEN THERE WERE THREE was a lesser effort showing signs of the crap to come...it actually has some good songs on it.

trick is Brilliant....in some was better than the Lamb....Phil shines on this record...I am a big Fan of old Genesis and Trick Is the record that really saved the band...ballsy record if ya ask me...Wind is really the extra fat from the Trick recordings(thats some good fat)....Then there were three still has that old Sound but you can hear the sound changing...."follow you" for example..But on the other hand"Deep into the motherload"is classic Genisis...

Agreed, Sam!

Also forgot to mention that the live album SECONDS OUT, which is also without Gabriel, kicks some serious ass, and contains a full version of SUPPER'S READY that is absolutely perfect.

The drumming between Collins and Buford on that live release should be listened to by everyone alive.
